    She can have the mage armor wand then.

    The glove stores an item, not a spell.

    "Ms Ormonde, this wand (the bullet shield) seems to be of the sort you may be best inclined to wield. Perhaps you'd carry it and grant us its benefits should the need arise?"




    I figure Rob's probably got the best UMD?

    She's ok for the moment... as I only have one major encounter left here (with a couple minor ones thrown in) let's try to get this wrapped up soon. I'm going to be swamped with work for the next month or so.

    Is everyone good with their item acquisitions?

    Are you still going to blow the stone up with explosives?

    I am fine with wrapping up quickly, but I am still waiting on an answer for the 2 items below that were not included in the description of identified items.  Both are potentially usable by JT, so hence my interest  afro

    the armor is adamantine breast plate, the club is just a +1 great club.

    What artifact are you referring to Matt?

    That is ridiculous, Rothschild will roll out my sleeping bag for me! Wink

    Which is another reason why Pathfinder is an antiquated system. Both 4e and 5e both allow for short rests and recovery of encounter-based spells.

    I don't believe that anyone has actually investigated the secret door to the south. the one to the north is a tunnel, as far as you can see and just seems to go on... you think this could just be an access tunnel?

    just let me know what the consensus is

    ok, I just want to be clear about the IRL issues here.....

    are we trying to wrap this up quickly or continuing to roleplay the whole dungeon?

    At our usual pace, we could poke around for weeks exploring, doing smaller encounters and such.

    It seems to me like the GM has asked twice to wrap this up. Yet we are all dillying around as usual. I suggest the GM just advances us to the final scene, with some brief narrative of exploration and how we got there. We do the final fight and conclusion, so Josh can focus on his IRL issues.

    I'm not trying to "wrap it up" so much as just to get an idea what you guys want to do next.

    Options:

    Rest somewhere
    Investigate the 'secret room'
    Blow the stone up and get to the next chamber
    Some combination of the above options
    ???

    What would you all like to do.

    Clarification: the secret room is the one to the south that is actually a secret door, I misspoke. The tunnel to the north is where your opponents entered from (I should have told you this earlier, sorry.)

    Map re-post for clarification:

    Secret Door: 0510

    Tunnel: 0302

    Sure thing, lets do it.





    Also - since this is winding down, and we are still learning the shadow run system -

    I'd like to offer to run another epic episode if you guys are interested. 16 levels and 1 mythic tier, same characters or new.

    Caveat - Im starting my new job next week, and have several badger trips/presentations/shows going down over the next 2 months. I could start it up around the 1st of next month.

    the wall panel slides open to reveal a vault (12' long, 10' wide). It contains tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of pounds worth of gold, items and artifacts. (Appraise roll?)

    there are more reliefs in this room that suggest the queen has "turned from the light"... whatever that could mean

    you also see an altar on which, from appearances, a stake is laid. It is made of gold, bronze and encrusted with lapis luzali, the stake itself is made out of what appears to be bone.

    Actions, questions?

    The glitter of gold sparkles in the witches' eyes. Many orphans could be fed from value of this hoard. "We must be careful. There may still me more traps."

    +3 traps (37)
    +2 if built into stone walls or floors or whatever (39)


    JT eyes the ritual stake, "That's an odd thing to leave about....." he thinks to himself "why would they leave the weapon of their own destruction in their treasure vault?"

    JT has a bit of Appraise. His dwarven eyes are drawn the shimmering piles of gold.

    nice roll! cheers

    you'd say about 1/4 million pounds worth of stuff is here... something else about this room... it was added after the tomb was built, your Dwarven knowledge of stone craft shows this to be added a few decades later you'd say, by different builders.

    Anyone with Knowledge Religion or Arcana is welcome to make rolls... or spellcraft for that matter.

    I'm noting your rolls Rob, just seeing if anyone else decides to make a roll (I see that Matt, at least, also has those skills)

    Bear with me here...

    As the Colonel views the objects in the room, he is reminded of rituals from India that had been described to him... purification rituals, binding spirits... something akin to that is what this room (as well as several of the objects, non-magical) are meant for...

    As Olivia tries to study the stake, she touches it and is immediately shown images in her mind.... In the dim and distant past, there was an a vile and manipulative queen... she corrupted her children and she turned her husband, the great Pharaoh Thutmoses III into a creature of darkness, appealing to his appetite for power and glory.



    Decades of darkness descended on Egypt...the people suffered and all of Thutmoses' enemies were crushed mercilessly.



    As this darkness descended on the land... Anubis took pity on the living, he did not take kindly to someone defying death or rushing others to their own deaths before their time was due.  The God of the Underworld, with the help of Isis, fashioned a holy weapon that could be used to slay these monsters.. but it fell to a young man of pure heart and will to end the reign of terror of these monsters....  such a man was found amongst the Pharaoh's bodyguards... a man of surprising strength and purity.



    After the two tyrants were slain, the god Anubis mandated that their remains were to mummified and entombed in sealed sarcophagi...  the last vision is of maidens laying the stake in this room... then it was sealed by spells and engineering skill.
